Title of the thesis:IMPACTS OF BIOFUEL PRODUCTION ON FOOD SECURITY
Summary:The subject of the bachelor thesis "Impacts of biofuel production on food security" is the identification of impacts of biofuel production on food security. The theoretical part consists of the definition and types of biofuels as well as their production methods. Subsequently, the work deals with the impact of biofuel production on food security. Food security and factors, that can have a great impact on it, are defined in the theoretical part. The empirical part consists of several studies that already dealt with the effects of biofuels production on food safety. The aim of the practical part is to calculate and evaluate the impacts of biofuel production as well as other factors that are influencing food safety. The calculations are based on the studies and regression analyzes. The basis for research is a database consisting of the data of three countries that are characterized by high volume of produced biofuels. Research is done with the use of regression analysis where food security scores are used for dependent variables based on global hunger index calculations. Independent variables are factors such as population growth, access to drinking water, and the amount of agricultural land but mainly the volume of biofuels produced in a given country. Based on the regression analyzes the results are interpreted and impacts of mentioned factors on food safety for each country are evaluated.
Key words:biofuels , food security, population growth, regression analysis
